Course Goals and Objectives (DACUM)

Course Marking Schema

Listed below are the course marking schema for each of our professional-level courses. If there is not a marking scheme below for the course that you are interested in, it is because the evaluation consists of a final quiz based on the concepts presented. For these courses a passing mark of 71% must be obtained to complete the course successfully.

Prior Learning Assessment Application (PLA)

Submit an online PLA form when applying to:

  • Have a CAA course prerequisite waived. For example, you would like to take the Avalanche Operations Level 2 course but do not have the Avalanche Operations Level 1 prerequisite; OR
  • Be granted equivalency to a CAA course. For example, an international worker requiring an Avalanche Operations Level 1 certificate in order to meet a ski area's patrol requirements.

View our Prior Learning Assessment Policy.


New as of April, 2017 all PLA applications are submitted online. View the Prior Learning Assessment - Application Information Webpage for details on the PLA process and for links to the PLA application online forms.


Each PLA application (AST 1 is exempt) requires an online reference letter submitted on its behalf:

Prior Learning Assessment - CAA Member Reference Form

Prior Learning Assessment - Non-CAA Member Reference Form

Letter of Intent

A Letter of Intent is used when a student does not meet a prerequisite for a course but intends to take the prerequisite prior to the course. This letter will need to be uploaded during the online registration, or online application process, in place of a prerequisite certificate. Students who have already taken the perquisite will upload a scan/JPeg of their perquisite course certificate.
